CEP00000007    Split Poems – Peter Hoflich and Jennifer Boudreaux – 27 and 38 pages long respectively

In 1999 I organized several of my poems from that year and 1998, and printed them in a split version with my old classmate Jennifer Boudreaux of Houston, Texas.  We have not met in 13 years, but have found it not difficult to communicate through the internet.
